Tucked into a make-up kit, handbag or one of our zippered pouches, a compact is a convenient thing to have on hand. A thoughtful gift for a strong woman, or a delightful addition to your own purse, this exclusive hinged compact with celebrated poet, memoirist, and civil rights activist Maya Angelou on the lid has a regular mirror on one side and a magnifying mirror on the other.
Maya Angelou spent much of her childhood in Stamps, Arkansas. After a traumatic event at age eight, she stopped speaking for five years. Maya rediscovered her voice through books, and went on to become one of the world's most beloved writers, speakers and activists.
